    Coral skeleton ID

    So it's Acropora Yongei. In nature it's Uniform cream, yellow or pale brown but in aquacultured it's green.....How do they make them be green??? Do they take two separate corals and cross them?? Like a hybrid?

    Diatoms, cyano, or dreaded dinos??

    Your reef tank is beautiful! Count your blessings its only diatoms! My tank (15 gallon) is also two months old (yes i'm also a newbie) and I got hit by both cyano and diatoms. I only have one coral in there right now.....I think the guy called it a devils finger or was it hand leather. Those stinkers are tough as nails! I had a huge ammonia spike and it battened down the hatches and rode through it unscathed and now its riding through the nitrites but it seems to like them which is super weird because I thought nitrites were bad and it got it polyps extended and is growing super fast. I am due for a big water change. Any thought on why though? I mean why my leather coral is growing faster with nitrites? Last I checked my nitrates it was around 40 ppm.
